Everyone from the College BFG is invited! Invite all your friends to come as well!! We are hoping to play sand volleyball, spike ball, frisbee, gaga ball…etc. We can’t wait to have a night to have fun and reflect on all the memories made and lessons the Lord has taught us this past year.
Our Week in the Word comes from Peter Holmes, one of our College Group leaders.
Spring is here — a time of rebirth and renewal. Grass is growing, baby birds are hatching, and a new baseball season has begun.
Spring reminds us of new beginnings, but it is also a time of endings.
For many of you, another school term is ending, and, for some, an entire season in your life is ending with graduation on the horizon. Even in those moments, there is a new beginning.
We just came out of the Easter season where we celebrated life — life in Christ. This is the ultimate beginning. Christ is the author of all life, of all beginnings. Throughout the New Testament, there are examples of Christ giving new life. Sometimes it is a very literal and physical new life like Lazarus and Jarius’ daughter. Other times, it is a spiritual new life, like Zacchaeus and Nicodemus. Christ came to give us new life. Life that is abundant. Life that is full and rich. Life that is everlasting.
Spring does not always stay, winter comes. Grass withers, birds migrate, and baseball seasons end. Nothing stays around, and nothing lasts forever. The only thing that lasts is eternal life. As we go out of the Easter season and enjoy the spring season, we need to focus on the abundant life that God has given us.
As we mow the grass, remember how Jesus died for our sins so that we can have life.
As we listen to the birds chirp, remember how Jesus was raised from the tomb and conquered death.
As another school year ends and another class graduates, remember that we have life abundantly in Christ, and thank God for the new life that he has given us.
